Elections are Fun!

I was so excited for yesterday! I took the kids with me to vote in the morning.

My household was split. Max, Elle, and I supported Obama, while Calvin held steadfast to McCain. Cal's daddy told him that Obama would take everyone's money and he wouldn't be able to buy toys for him. I explained that Obama would only take his daddy's money, but the rest of us would be ok. Cal didn't buy it. It is funny when your 7, 5 and 3 yr. olds are arguing economics at the kitchen table.

As the results started coming in, I carried on one of my childhood traditions and had the kids color in each state red or blue. They really got into it for awhile. But, by 8 o'clock, they ditched my MSNBC for Spongebob!

I am bound and determined to make them fellow political junkies!
